Comfortable, practical and better still – invisible!
As a parent, the decision to straighten your child's teeth isn't something that should be rushed – it will not only affect their life now, but their future as well. Our experienced orthodontists will provide all the information you need to make the right decision for your child.
As a teenager you may be conscious of your smile but some people feel that wearing traditional fixed braces could be embarrassing. If you feel like this, Invisalign Teen could offer a suitable alternative. They are almost invisible, removable, comfortable, practical, affordable and effective.
Is Invisalign Teen suitable for my child?
Invisalign Teen is generally used in the treatment of minor orthodontic problems and, although capable of treating a variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite, it is not suitable for all treatment types.
Because every mouth is different, at Lincoln Orthodontics our highly qualified orthodontists will fully assess every patient individually before providing a range of different brace options for them to consider. At this time, the orthodontist will also discuss with you whether or not Invisalign Teen is a practical option for your teenager’s orthodontic treatment.
Better dental health
Because Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, teenagers can continue brushing and flossing as normal which can lead to better overall dental heath in the future. However, the aligners must be worn as prescribed by the orthodontist to ensure treatment is successful and completed on time. The recommended time for wear is 22 hours a day and to help your teenager keep track of this, Invisalign Teen aligners have a blue dot wear indicator.
The aligners can also be removed for occasions such as playing sports or musical instruments so your teenager doesn’t have to worry about their orthodontic treatment impacting on their lifestyle.
